BLACK PANTHER 2: AN ALL FEMALE SEQUEL MAY HAPPEN…
No doubt, Marvel’s Black Panther is a massive success story. With Wakanda now established as a cultural icon, fans have naturally been looking ahead to Black Panther 2, a sequel.
While at Cannes Film Festival, director Ryan Coogler made some comments that should make the Dora Milaje do their victory chant.
According to him, an all-female (or at least predominantly female) Black Panther 2 is something possible.
One of the main storylines that could come after is a “Fall of the King” storyline that sees T’Challa exiled from his homeland, leaving Shuri, Nakia, and the Dora Milaje to run Wakanda.
From Avengers: Infinity Wars, it is clear that Wakanda may never be the same again after the Battle of Wakanda and the tragic loss of the Wakandan people and their king, T’Challa… Wakanda will have had to soldier on without its king, and that means other prominent figures probably females will have had to step up in T’Challa’s place. Shuri is expected to take up the throne and Black Panther mantle like she did in the comics, and based on the losses Wakanda suffered, T’Challa’s return may not receive a warm welcome.
Hopefully, Marvel can make this happen.
